That makes two straight wins for the Bucs after starting off the season with a rough loss to the New Orleans Saints. Brady and Gronk both enjoyed their best performances so far with their new team in Week 3.
Here's a look at how the former New England Patriots fared vs. Denver, along with highlights:
Brady connects with Godwin on a TD early in the 1st quarter
Evans gets in on the action in the 2nd
Pretty throw and catch from Brady to Howard
Another short TD to Evans
Brady looked like... well, Tom Brady throughout this game. Unlike last week's win over the Carolina Panthers, the ex-Pats QB was able to rely on his wide receivers. The return of Chris Godwin certainly didn't hurt either.
Brady's final stat line: 25/38, 297 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT
Gronk comes oh so close to first Tampa TD
Gronk shows he still has some juice left in the legs, gets separation for a redzone look but he was just barely out of bounds.pic.twitter.com/ygn0RsPLUk— Dov Kleiman (@NFL_DovKleiman) September 27, 2020
Gronkowski was inches away from coming down with his first Buccaneers touchdown, but that'll have to wait at least another week. On the bright side, this was by far Gronk's most productive day as a pass-catching tight end in Tampa Bay. The Brady-Gronk chemistry New Englanders are so familiar with appears to slowly but surely be coming to the forefront.
Gronk's final stat line: 6 receptions, 48 yards
Next up for the Buccaneers (2-1) is a Week 4 meeting with the Los Angeles Chargers.
